Thank you to all 2015-16 teams for a great regular season! You worked hard through three Round Robins and Regionals and you should be commended.
Congratulations to all teams who qualified for the State Meet! We look forward to seeing you on April 16! Here are a few important details to get ready for State.
U.S. Academic Triathlon State Tournament is April 16, 2016 at Cottage Grove Middle School, 9775 Indian Blvd S, Cottage Grove, MN 55016. State Host/Facilitators (to be chosen by USAT) will meet at 10 a.m., and all coaches will meet at 10:45 a.m. During this time, students will have team picture taken. The State Meet will officially begin with teams registering at 11:45 a.m. then go off to compete. P.A.R.T.Y. in a Box presentations will begin around 2:45 p.m., and the awards ceremony will take place around 4:30 p.m. to wrap up the day around 5 p.m. (all times after registration are approximate and subject to change).
Deadline to register for the State Tournament is April 1, 2016. [NOTE: If we haven’t heard from you by 11:59 p.m. on April 1, you will forfeit your place and we will open it up to the second place team at Regionals. Don’t delay!] A $50 tournament registration fee is due April 8, 2016. Check the website after April 6, 2016 for Tournament Information.
Submit your registration form (which was given to you at your Regional Meet) by scanning and emailing it to Executive Director Sarah Sheldon at email@example.com then mail it with the registration fee to U.S. Academic Triathlon, 2355 Fairview Ave N #335, Roseville, MN 55113. If you have misplaced your form, contact Sarah Sheldon for a copy.
Each team must bring two Volunteer Facilitators, at least 16 years of age or older. Volunteer Facilitators must have a working knowledge of USAT and its Program Manual (which can be found at usacademictriathlon.com) and have helped at a Meet previously. Volunteer Facilitators will work in either of the State Meets in which their team is not competing. They will, however, be finished in time to see their team’s P.A.R.T.Y. in a Box presentation and not have to judge any of the skits.
You will find complete information about the State Tournament at http://www.usacademictriathlon.com after April 6. If you have registration questions, please contact Sarah Sheldon at 507-645-2560 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
